Hi I want to ask for some advice, I am Muslim girl; recently my parents have mentioned looking for someone for me to marry. And I mentioned this to my friend (Christian guy for a few years) and he suggested how about they two of us having a future together..... And i need some advice... Being a Muslim girl, I pray as often as i can and try to please my parents and make them happy and lead my life in a good way as much as possible... I know a Muslim girl is not able to marry a non Muslim so not sure how to go about this.... I have known this guy for a few years and we are like best friends, we have talked about religion and beliefs etc in the past as an on off discussion, and he is fairly open minded... His parents are strict Christians however he is not so much, but thinks its good to lead life in a good way and be good to people etc.... From our discussions, he has never fully accepted prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as a prophet, part of this is to do with his parent’s belief on religion and some from his own understanding....and things he has read that can be misinterpreted to show Islam in a bad light he asked me recently, why does a Christian guy have to convert to marry a Muslim and is there no way around it, i like you the way you are and will not force you to change or stop praying etc, but i don’t want to convert... His parents will most likely disown him if he marries a Muslim and mine will disown me for marrying a non Muslim and im not sure i can.... What should i do? Is there any way around this??
